Got Drought?

GotDrought? began as a concept for a few billboards and blossomed into a statewide campaign, aiming to draw parallels between industrialized animal agriculture and the drought in California.

Industry and lawmakers refer to the drought in California as a “long-term problem” but so far have only offered short-term solutions such as “if its yellow, let it mellow”. The GotDrought campaign strives to motivate Californians to send a message to our industrial agriculture industry “Let’s milk a few less cows and save the world!” STRATEGY: Vegan activism has one big fault; it appeals mostly to people who are already vegan, alienating the group they want to reach.

Immigrant Justice Advocates

CLIENT: Asian Americans Advancing Justice Immigrant Justice Advocates is a campaign to make the US Deferred Action Program more approachable and more accessible to undocumented youths in America.

The solution: a brand that engages with students in an approachable away, but also emulates safety, security and professionalism, and a program that engages peers and educates teachers and administrators. Immigrant Justice Advocates lays a cool foundation for both registered and unregistered students. It utilizes very complicated government regulations and paperwork designed for optimum simplicity and legebility in Chinese, Spanish, English and Filipino.

Flores Upholstery

Family owned and operated since 1976, Flores Upholstery remains the final word in soft things one sits on. “Modern” and “Retro style” were two ideas emphasized in this project. The trick was figuring out how to make something look essentially classic but also contemporary, or is that just a contradiction in itself? The resolution was incorporating this Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair to the logo to contrast the old style typographic approach we used.
